    All of the first marines I ever saw were in dark blue plastic. I've been playing since, well... 1st edition. Never saw them in tan, or any other color until many many many years later.

    Most are home made. I think if anyone was producing this stuff for sale, they'd get sued by you know who. I've seen a pair of space marine costumes that were made for a video game company for...

    They had charts in the back of the old Rogue Trader books for generating random equipment for each race.

    I seem to remember the squats had access to more unconventional weaponry, like conversion...

    Model wargaming has always been an expensive niche hobby. It was never cheap. In many cases, the plastic kits are cheaper then the metal blister packs used to be. I've been playing since first...

    I use to use 1 foot terrain tiles (made on top of commercial wooden floor tiles), but I stopped for one big reason... not only are the lines annoying, but people figured out they could park their...

    Cutting off sales to retailers would be insane. If you carry GW products at all in your store, you've probably have a couple thousand dollars of their product sitting on your shelves (or more). ...

    Naw, it shouldn't harm the paint. Model railroad people have entire setups for creating smoke for scale model steam locomotives, and they go nuts on painting, weathering, and decals.

    I agree with him. If you're not going to have a quad gun on the aegis line, then it makes even less sense to me to have your chaos lord sitting around.

    You should have a plan for every unit you...

    The one with the cultists will probably survive longer... but, what exactly is he going to accomplish in the game? Seems a weird waste of a chaos lord. I don't take any unit without having a...

    Yeah, the language is unclear.

    But that will all change when they get a new codex. The newer format books (like chaos space marines) are all pretty clear on what you have to give up in order to...

    Autocannons are fun.

    I used to use giant packs of chaos cultists with 2 autocannons. Blew up a leman russ once. If I remember right, back then chaos cultists needed a 6 to even hit. It hit,...

    Really depends on the scenario

    I lost over 2/3rd's of my army at a tournament game, and still won by the end, because my opponent wasn't even paying attention to the victory conditions.

    The scenario had a central objective in...

    Talking to the TO won't work... he's obviously sniffing his own fumes.

    Drops in attendance probably won't mean much to him at all... in his mind, everything is perfect, so problems obviously lie...

    Wraithlords are grown out of wraithbone, not built. All of the eldar stuff is based on a super advanced bio-organic technology. So poison actually makes a weird sort of sense.

    I've seen only a single squats army

    It increases your odds of achieving whatever plan you have for the battle. One off units are fun, but it sucks when you roll badly and...
